Vincent Larderet is worthy of the title of highest end French concert pianist of the 21st century. His 3 world premiere recordings of Schmitt’s La Tragédie de Salomé, Ravel’s Orchestral & Virtuoso Piano and Ravel’s Concertos & Schmitt J’entends dans le lointain… won a total of 24 worldwide awards. Larderet is the only living French pianist who received this honor and attracted international recognition for the exceptional intensity of his very personal and deeply inspired interpretations often compared to the piano legends such as Michelangeli, Arrau, Zimerman and Argerich. Praised as an “impressive pianist” (MusicWeb International, UK) for his “very lyrical playing” (Crescendo Magazine, Belgium) and his “multi-timbred” sound (Fanfare, USA), he “makes the piano equal to an orchestra” (Classica, France) with a wide range of “fascinating pianistic colors” (PIANO News, Germany). Internationally renowned as a Ravel specialist, he studied Ravel’s works on Perlemuter’s personal scores annotated after his collaboration with the composer. Graduated from Lübeck’s Musikhochschule in Germany with the legendary pianist Bruno-Leonardo Gelber, he is a winner of various international prizes such as Maria Canals in Barcelona, A.M.A. Calabria (in Italy under the jury of Lazar Berman) and Brest. Honored by the revered title of “Steinway Artist” and nominated for the “International Classical Music Awards” (ICMA), he is also “Classical Revelation” by Adami winner at MIDEM in Cannes and laureate of the “International Orpheum foundation for young Soloists” in Switzerland. Mr Larderet has performed worldwide in recital and concerto at prestigious venues. He is also the Artistic Director of the “Piano au Musée Würth” international festival in France. For his solo recital during “Le French May” associated project, Larderet will perform Debussy, Liszt, Ravel and Berg piano works including the first presentation in HK of his new Brahms – Berg ARS SACD-CD. In the chamber music concert, Larderet alongside with the first German prize-winner at the International Tchaikovsky Competition Nicolas Koeckert, the most influential Chinese cellist in the World Chu Yi-Bing and the first Prize Winner of the Stravinsky Awards International Piano Competition Hong Kong pianist Warren Lee, 4 distinguished world class performers brings audience an exquisite chamber music concert. The French contemporary artist Isabelle Ribot’s Art painting exhibition and cocktail reception starting before the concerts. This world-class high end Art and cultural event is not to be missed!
